Thankfully, once she was back on-set, those nerves melted away. Or as she put it, “I faked it until I made it.”
Hayden shared, “Luckily, when I got there and we did the scene and the camera was not on me at first and I got everything out and I didn’t have a lot of lines, an easy scene first, I was like, ‘Okay, I can do this.'”
In fact, it was her dedicated fans’ belief in her that helped her along the way.
“They had great timing,” Hayden added. “The time that I needed it the most, they really inspired me and made my heart feel very full.”
